      Tatsuo

      The Harvester

AGE
      900+ years

GENDER
      Male

SPECIES
      Harpy

ETHNICITY
      Japanese

OCCUPATION
      Vagrant

GENERAL APPEARANCE
      In human form,Tatsuo is of relatively unimpressive stature at 5'7". His hair is long, white, and often unkempt, and his face is youthful and attractive if not somewhat feminine. His build is slim, looking nearly underweight but packed with lean muscle for flight, and his skin is a pallid, almost bluish hue, his blood a dark navy color. His eyes are dark, reddish brown, but give off a faint yellow glow, nearly white, in the dark. He dresses in a black cloak.

      In his true form, however, he is much larger: with a wingspan of 7 meters, Tatsuo is taller than most men when standing. He's covered in pitch black feathers but for his face, which is a nightmarish visage akin to a bird skull, his beak armed with sharp teeth. His eyes are large and yellow-white, glowing in darkness just as they do in his human form. His feet are scaly and taloned like an eagle's, his tail broad, feathered, and bird-like.
   
   
PERSONALITY TRAITS

   
    ImagePERSONALITY
      As harpies are renowned to be, Tatsuo is wicked, selfish, and destructive. He likes to make things difficult for others, to say the least, though he is just as content to observe suffering as he is to cause it. Being selfish, he is somewhat of a coward and will not typically hesitate to flee if circumstances turn against him. Although he's clever and not easily fooled, he's also very food-motivated; it's quite simple to draw a favor out of him if he's first paid with food, namely meat, which is his favorite. Despite this, he rarely hunts for himself, more often sighted scavenging on the dead - hence his title as "the Harvester" - or even picking through people's trash.

      Due to his delight in others' suffering, Tatsuo is often mistaken for cruel, but he's not completely heartless. His greatest interest may be his own well-being, but he is sometimes willing to help others - more often when there may be something in it for him, of course.

      A harpy is accustomed to life in a flock. On his own, Tatsuo frequently gets lonely, and craves company and social interaction even if he won't admit it. He usually sates this feeling by spending time with crows, who he gets along with quite well; most other creatures he does not get along with despite his loneliness, even tengu, which he loathes, finding their subordination to the oni pathetic and disgraceful, and their chatty dispositions annoying. Humans he dislikes even more - though he enjoys watching and toying with them, he sees them as inferior to youkai, and hates that humans encroach more and more into youkai territory.

LIKES DISLIKES
Crows Humans
Meat Tengu
Bones Fire
Night Fireworks

COMBAT ABILITIES

   
    ABILITIES
      Alternate forms : Most prominently, Tatsuo can fluidly shapeshift between his true form and human form, though he much prefers the former. In human form, he can still make use of his wings on a whim, though they take the place of his arms. Human form takes effort to maintain, however, and may even sprout feathers or altogether revert if he is stressed, sick, or fatigued.

      Wind manipulation : Harpies are capable of stirring or calming the wind in their vicinity effortlessly, though the maximum wind force Tatsuo is capable of summoning is only enough to destroy very lightweight structures.

      Flying strength : Unlike ordinary birds, harpies can lift and carry quite heavy objects in their talons or on their backs without detriment to their flight. This enables them to even carry off people if they so choose - or steal any number of other things.

WEAPONS/TOOLS
      Tatsuo is armed with no weapons but for his own teeth and talons.

STRENGTHS
      - Tatsuo is very fast and agile, even in human form
      - He's clever and not easily fooled or lied to
      - Due to living in the mountains, he has great resistance to cold

WEAKNESSES
      - Though certainly stronger than most humans, Tatsuo is far from the most physically strong of youkai and can be fairly easily overpowered if he can be caught
      - Tatsuo is very food-motivated; food easily wins his loyalty or lowers his guard
      - He has a fear of fire and fireworks
   
BACKGROUND

   
ImageHISTORY
      The harpies of Japan live in the north; the females, like harpies of other regions, are renowned for their bare chests and beautiful, human faces. The males, on the other hand, are more birdlike in their natural form. Tatsuo was raised in a cold and mountainous environment where his flock preyed on the livestock of far-off villages. Harpy flocks are matriarchal, with females making decisions and issuing commands, leaving males to follow orders and often do the dirty work - not that any males were discontent with that.

      With the food supply of their territory waning, a number of males were sent in different directions across Japan and even outside it in search of someplace the rest of the flock might relocate to. Tatsuo was one of these scouts, however, even after reaching Gensokyo, he has slacked off and is enjoying taking his time to get to know the area and its inhabitants. He has found that even this far from his homeland, it remains that many Japanese have never heard of harpies and continue to mistake him for tengu.

Rather than trying to find a cave or make a burrow - the latter of which was only the harpy's very last resort for daytime shelter - Tatsuo had settled on a perch in the depths of the woods. In the dense interior of the forest, the trees and vines were thick enough that very little sunlight crept in - only a dim, scattered speckling, not enough to bother a sleeping Tatsuo. Who, in sleep, appeared all the more concealed high in the densely-leaved treetops, bundled comfortably with his pale, skull-like visage tucked under his wing, so that he was only a large clump of black plumage. The movement of his soft, restful breathing blended in perfectly with the gentle motions of branches in the wind. In the relative darkness of this part of the forest, he was quite camouflaged so long as his face was hidden. He was perched in somewhat close proximity to the village, but humans rarely ventured even this far into the woods, so between that and his camouflage, Tatsuo slept unconcerned.

The harpy likely wouldn't stir until dusk unless disturbed prematurely, which the envelope that had been tucked into some leaves of the branch he was on failed to do.

As Rin walked through a forest on her way to Youkai Mountain, she and Akane were quite hungry, and they kept a lookout for any small animals to eat. As they neared a tree, Rin hearda rustling noise, as well as something like breathing, hidden cleverly with the wind. Also a faint beat that grew louder with the wind. She looked up and saw a whitish object within the leaves

They had bread in their basket, but it was for the other youkai on the mountian. Rin, with her slightly curved, sharp nails gently put the basket down and climbed the nearly-straight tree. Akane sat watch over the basket. Rin got to the white thing and took it out from it's cover. It was a letter. Rin thought that a tengu might have lost it, or forgotten it. The beating was very loud here and she sensed something below her. She krept down to the branch below her. It was a tengu. She started poking the poor thing 'till it woke up. and almost fell out of the tree.

"Is this yours?" and she held the message up in front of it's face. "I didn't read it. I swear." Rin told him with a reassuring smile, although it was a bit more scary for a bird than reassuring, because of all her sharp teeth.

It was much too early for Tatsuo to be any semblance of awake. He slept on undisturbed and unmoving, oblivious to the small, pink-haired predator creeping up his tree - right up until he was prodded in the wing.

The harpy gave a small, startled kak! something like the noise a crow might make. His fearsome face lifted out from under his wing, raising and rearing back to peer sleepily at whatever had poked him, at which his jaws parted slightly to issue a long, soft hiss in irritation. Tatsuo was not intimidated by anything smaller than him. Anything smaller than him, after all, was generally edible. But he did not appreciate being snuck up on, nor being rudely roused from his sleep. His huge, dark frame lifted from the balled position it had been in to full height, wings spreading a little purely to make his form all the more imposing. "How dare you touch me with your flea-infested-" He stopped short at eyeing the envelope. "Is that mine..?" He added quietly, almost more to himself, before making a brisk hop closer and moving to snatch the envelope from the cat girl with one of his talons. "Give me that," he snapped impatiently. It was very rare that Tatsuo ever had mail or any kind of message. He was not the most popular youkai.

Kiyoko and Dream were wandering around the town, mostly around the Noh stage area, hoping to see a play. Kiyoko noticed two people fighting about something a short ways away, but they were too far for their words to reach. "We do not get into their buisness. They do not get into ours." The wise words of the wolf echoed around in Kiyoko's head. Around the area were a lot of mats around, there was a grandmother eating snacks with her grandaughter. There were also many kids playing games around as well. When they saw dream, they all ran to pet her. The large wolf sucked it all up, just not the noise. "Can she do tricks?" one child asked. Dream then stood up, and jumped six feet in the air, doing a backflip and landing in the same area.

"Chi-Chi," Chou exclaimed with a part of her riceball in her mouth, "did you see that? That dog jumped in the air!" Chiyoko turned her head toward where Chou was pointing and saw what the large wolf. The wolf proceeded to perform the trick a second time. Then Kiyoko told the kids, "Hey, watch this..." and Kiyoko climbed on Dream and then, Using a wind rune, made them both levitate. Chou was mesmerized.

"Chou, that isn't simply a 'dog'," Chiyoko corrected, "we must give our respect to deities." Chou pleaded, "I wanna go pet it!" Kiyoko heard chou's words. "You can, She loves it." The young girl then walked over to the wolf and sunk her hand into the long, thick fur.

"We give you our most sincere gratitude," Chiyoko said, placing her hands on the ground and bowing to the young woman, "as it is a great honor to bear witness to a living god. Please accept our most honest respect." Chou didn't seem to care for respects as she happily ran her hands through the large wolf's white fur.

"Oh, it's nothing. If she wants to ride with me, its fine. I need to get out more anyways." Then the other kids started pleading to ride with her. "One at a time, for safety, maybe" Dream forgot about the dangerous 'war' and just relaxed and played. Being a god in wolf form wasn't bad, it was fun!

"Can I?" Chou asked her grandmother? "It is bad practice to refuse the blessings of a god," she said, "but when accepting a blessing, one must give an offering to their deities." Chou looked somewhat troubled as she didn't really have anything on her to offer. "Here Chou," Chiyoko offered, holding a riceball in her hand, "give her your mother's snack. I'm sure your slowpoke of a mother won't mind." Chou giddly ran to Chiyoko and accepted the riceball in her hand, before beginning to sprint back.

"Hold it there, Chou," Chiyoko called, "you must offer it to her properly. Remember, slowly now." Chou bit the corner of her lip as she went over the proper stance from memory. She straightened herself up and slightly bent her knees, riceball cupped in her hands near her stomach. Then, she began to walked slowly, keeping her body level and her footsteps even. Approaching the wolf, Chou got a nervous feeling. She stopped and brought her cupped hands out. Chou hesitated, before remembering something. "Please accept my offering," she said in a clear tone.

Kiyoko was a bit confused at this but went with it. "Thank you, and may your teachings be very well recieved." she said as she looked Chou in the eye. Kiyoko put it in a basket she purchased while wandering. "Come now, we may float!" and dream rolled on her side. Kiyoko instructed Chou to grab a clump of fur and hold it tightly. Once that was done, the wolf layed like she usually did. Kiyko climbed up like she usually did so she could get Chou into a comfortable position. She pulled the wind rune out of the bag and wrapped her arms around Chou. "Now, this might be a little scary.." "Don't worry," Chou assured, "Mom is scarier than anything!" And then they went up! Dream went in a circle, Just one as to not make them dizzy (or herself for that matter), and then back to solid ground. Then they dismounted, sliding down the fur as if it were a modern day fire pole.

"Chi-Chi! Did you see that?" Chou called, running toward her grandmother with her arms out, "I was flying! I was flying really high!" Chiyoko chuckled as Chou flew into her lap. "You weren't flying, silly," Chiyoko told Chou, patting her head, "You were on the back of a flying wolf. Did it feel like you were flying?" Chou nodded her head. Chiyoko ruffled up her hair affectionately. "Hold onto that feeling Chou," Chiyoko said, "that's an important feeling."

Kiyoko gave the other childeren a ride, all of them screamed when they went up, unlike Chou.

After all that, Kiyoko asked Chou if she really wanted to fly. "Flying is really fun, I really like it" Chou answered, "There's this pond behind the shrine that Genji lives in. Genji's a turtle, a big one, and he can fly! Chi-Chi sometimes calls him for help, but Mom doesn't. Chi-Chi says Mom's afraid of heights. I wanna fly like a turtle!" "Then watch me." Kiyoko told the young Chou in a low, excing voice, and began to float on her own, without Dream. And then she made Chou float a bit as well. 'You have full control. But, there is a limit, and that is a few miles just before the heavens."

Chiyoko whispered to Chou, "Do you want to try flying?" Chou nodded. "Then there you go!" Chiyoko released Chou and Chou instantly began to leviate, as if gravity had completely lost it's hold on her. Chou began to squirm about in every direction as she slowly drifted up. She moaned in anxiety."Try thinking about were you wish to go." Kiyoko instructed.

"I wanna come down now!" Chou called nervously. She had drifted about 5 meters in the air now. Her long, flowing robes twisted and turned about in relation to gravity as Chou flailed about. Chiyoko stood up. "Don't worry, dear," she assured, "I got you."

"Okay," Kiyoko said and she gently willed Chou down before realeasing the effect on her. Chiyoko caught the nervous little girl in her arms and held her tightly. "My same reaction when I first learned." Kiyoko told them as she herself floated down, about an inch off the ground before putting the rune in her pouch, releasing the effect on herself and anything else that might of had the effect. "My teacher." Kiyoko said, motioning to the large wolf, fast asleep. Chiyoko nodded in acknowledgement.

"Am I to understand that she," Chiyoko motioned to the wolf, "is your patron deity? Yet you yourself have become a living god. It's not unheard of, one's blessings being mistaken for another. How does she feel about it, I wonder?" Kiyoko turned to the wolf, still half asleep. "They must not know, what I really am, I am okay with it..." Dream told the girl, the only one that could hear her besides humans that are under the influence of gods. "S-she is okay with it. But she seems sad to me all the time. This is the happiest I have ever seen her today. I do remember, though, falling from the sky, into a lake. ANd she brought me ashore and took me to the local herbalist. I grew up with him, and now I work for him." Kiyoko said, staring past Dream, at the sun high in the sky. Suddenly, Kiyoko remembered. "Have you heard?"

"Heard what?" Chiyoko replied. Kiyoko told the old woman what the Herbalist told her. Chiyoko pursed her lips. "Here, Chou, why don't I put you down, so you can go have a seat" she said, "you're getting awfully big for me." Chiyoko gently placed Chou onto her feet, who proceeded to run back to their mat compliantly.

"If that's true," Chiyoko responded to Kiyoko more sternly, "then we will have to be cautious in the near future. I have no doubt in my mind that the Youkai are plotting for trouble. Are you absolutely sure these rumours are true?" "The town sounds very serious. And I found the maker of the rumors. He had not told a lie for some time." Kiyoko replied. "I looked through his soul." Chiyoko closed her eyes and took a deep breath, crossing her arms.

"We'll look into this issue as promptly as we can," Chiyoko told her, "As soon as tommorow, perhaps. We'll figure out what they're plotting." "May I be of assistance?" Kiyoko asked, "you are of the Hakurei family, correct?" Chiyoko nodded.

"If a god could possibly gain insight on what the Youkai are doing," Chiyoko explained, "that would be greatly appreciated. We would be sure to present you with great offerings if you were able to accomplish that, both of you that is." Chiyoko bowed respectfully. "Oh, no need for offerings. I am meant to make peace, and if peace fails, I can be destructive. But only if needed." Kiyoko replied, making herself invisible with the air rune. "I'm going to Youkai Mountain soon." and then she reappeared.

"A thousand blessings of gratitude for you," Chiyoko told her, "and a thousand prayers for your good health, your untainted soul and your safe return!" "And the same for you and your granddaughter." Kiyoko responded, with a big smile. She as just about to head home, she went to Chou.

Kiyoko always had extra runes, along with messed up ones that were just as powerful with what they did, but they only did one thing, and she handed Chou an air rune, but it was messed up so it could only make you fly. "On the back are the words to you need to whisper to levitate, or fly. It with make it easier for you to learn how to fly. But do it in a roofed area for starters untill you can make yourself go down." Kiyoko squeezed Chou's hand a little, "Be carefull, dont break it. I advise you get a small pouch for it and keep it with you at all times." Kiyoko knew that Chou was going to like flying once she got used to it. And if she learned how to do it, it would help her a lot in the future.

Kiyoko said her farwells to chou and Chiyoko, and went home with Dream to prepare for the hike to Youkai Mountain tonight. They would pack a lot of food to take, for it was going to be a long journey.

Rin was a bit startled by everything the Tengu said, And the fact that it thought the mail was for him... And maybe it was. Yes, she did rudely wake him up, but no need for the hissing. "Are you going too?" Rin asked before he could do anything. But before he could respond... "Akane!!! no rats, please!!" Rin yelled at him. "You know rats have diseases! we don't want that. leave it alone."

Rin then turned her attention to the Tengu again. "I don't have fleas, if I did I would pick them off." she added, looking at some of the scars on her skin from picking off fleas and ticks after being a cat. And she cut her hair off once or twice every week. Being a cat, it grew back fast. "B-but you are going, aren't you?? and if you aren't, you have to know about it, you are a tengu. And I hear word travels fast for tengus."

He scrutinized the girl with what seemed an annoyed expression - though facial expressions were very subtle on his avian visage. "Going where?" He retorted with the same impatience as before, beginning to deftly tear open the envelope with his beak. The harpy paused at spotting the cat's prize, however, and with a swift snap of his jaws forward, snatched the rat, throwing his head back to drop the rodent down his throat, swallowing it whole in seconds. He then resumed tearing open the envelope.

Tatsuo could have easily eaten the cat, too, but he decided to only do that if its youkai friend annoyed him enough. "I don't know what you're talk- I am not a tengu," he seethed at once, his feathers all bristling angrily, making him appear almost twice his already formidable size. The envelope, already wrinkled in the hold of his claws, was smushed under his foot as he set both feet back down on his perch to stand towering over the cat girl. "You're unfathomably fortunate I haven't made a meal of you and your little hairball," the harpy made a brisk nod of his head toward the girl's feline companion. "But that can quickly change if you don't explain what the hell you're talking about." Tatsuo was more of a scavenger than a predator, and his threat was, at the least, half empty. Humans and animals were one thing, but youkai put up much more of a fight; truly, he would prefer not to have to wrestle with the cat youkai to drop her from a great height, even if it meant smashing her open and eating her. All of that was a lot of work... for what looked like relatively little meat.

It seemed the contents of the envelope were going to wait - whatever this 'flea-infested' mammal was rambling on about was more pressing, considering she had woken him up in the middle of the day to pester him about it.

Rin was more shocked by his rudeness than ever. "There is a meeting at Youkai Mountian. And i am very sorry, I-I though you were a tengu. Maybe that's what the envelope has in it. Maybe it's about the meeting." Rin was hesitant, if he started to get hostile enough, she would grab Akane and the basket and run. She was a fast runner. Out ran the slowest tengu. But this was NOT a Tengu. She had no idea what he was, or how fast. Then she noted a bunch of rabbit holes just out of the forest. If she was going to go cat, she would be forced to leave the basket, and Akane might not catch on very quickly. Should she have even bothered this youkai? maybe not.

"So you aren't a Tengu... and I don't mean to be rude any more than I have already, its just my schooling is not very well... What are you excactly then?" Rin slowly asked, all the color drained from her face. She feared more for her cat's life than her own. She loved Akane more than anything, because after her cabin burned down with her parents, Akane came to her out of the bright red flames, Hence his name. "Just don't hurt Akane" she quietly pleaded to the large bird.

The girl's posture appeared to shrink, her face growing more timid and fearful. That was better. Tatsuo's feathers settled, and he shifted his wings back into a comfortable resting position, clicking his beak once in satisfaction. "None of your business, that's what," the harpy retorted with what sounded like a snide smile in his tone, though again, not much expression was reflected in his face.

"A meeting, hm..?" He parroted belatedly, gazing down at the envelope. He picked the message up in his claw to resume opening it carefully - with the note in his beak, he discarded the envelope and then switched the note to his claws, exercising what was clearly a practiced amount of force so as not to pierce the paper with his talons.

Tatsuo wasn't invited to meetings very often at all. Many local youkai of Gensokyo still considered him somewhat of a foreigner, since he had come from another region of Japan. "It must be pretty important." With a drowsy sigh, he reared up again - but not in a show of size this time, extending his huge wingspan only to stretch before shaking himself, discarding the note, and folding his wings once more.

The basket caught his eye next. He tilted his head to peer down at the container. "What's in the basket, cat?" He asked of the smaller youkai. Already, a scheme was stirring in his mind about the easiest way to obtain whatever food might be in the basket. Of course, assuming it held food was wishful thinking on the harpy's part.

When the bird asked what was in the basket, Rin was still scared cold. "Bread. Bread for the meeting, my way of saying 'Thank you' when someone invites me some were, Especially their house or meeting."
She looked at Akane. "And sometimes Akane is in there as well." Now Rin wonders if she should have left Akane at home, and sent him to the town afterwards... No. She couldn't possibly leave Akane behind. Never unless it risked his life like right now, 'Ugh, it's so confusing!' Rin thought to herself. 'Maybe I should have just left this bird alone... Yea...but too late now. I, a tiny Nekomata, could never control time.' All this is in her head as the bird stared at her and her basket.

Bread was far from his favorite, but it was still food. And the girl still looked frightened enough that perhaps this could be even easier than he had initially anticipated. Already, he had formulated a plan A, B, and C.

Tatsuo gave another interested tilt of his head. "Oh? And do you offer bread as a way of saying 'thanks' when someone spares your life?" He questioned lightly, in a mocking tone that clearly suggested he was expecting to receive the bread - presumably in return for not eating the cat girl or her cat.

Akane was yowling about a rodent of some sort. Apparently it went under a tree and he could not reach it. This went on for a few minutes and was painfully loud to Rin. The pink-haired Nekomata was unsure if it bugged the bird at all. She was still wondering what he was. Finally Akane stopped his noise as he ran up another tree after what looked like a squirel.

All this time Rin was lost in thought, Dazed. Confused. When she came to, she climbed out of the tree, Got the basket and took out four slices of bread, brought them up the tree and presented three them in front of the bird. She split the fourth piece in half and threw the other on the ground, Either to be eaten by the cat waiting below or used as rodent bait for hunting, However Akane saw it fit. Rin started eating her half of sliced bread.
( All the bread is white bread And Pain. :3)

Tatsuo continued to watch the cat girl expectantly, though she stared in silence with a dumb look on her face for what must have been at least a full minute. The cat was making noise in the meantime - some disagreeable, yowling sound. Just as it began to get on Tatsuo's nerves, however, the girl finally moved to retrieve the basket compliantly.

There turned out to be a lot of bread. Tatsuo didn't even want all of it; bread weighed heavily in his digestion, hence it not being his favorite. But he carefully took and then gobbled down one piece, then another, but left the third and allowed the cat girl to keep the two halves she had split between her and her cat.

A long, thin, pointed tongue picked at some of the bits of bread that had gotten caught in his teeth, but after that was finished, the harpy stretched and shifted his wings again. That had been surprisingly easy. He glanced up through the forest canopy at where scattered speckles of sunlight reached through the leaves. It looked bright out… Tatsuo was accustomed to cloudy climates and didn't like bright sunshine.

"Hmmmn." He made a thoughtful sound, shifting around his wings some more in what seemed a contemplative gesture. "I could fly you to the mountain. But you'll owe me a favor. How's that?" He offered, albeit in no warmer a tone than before, looking to the cat girl again with another tilt of his head.
